Symposium on Acoustic Metamaterials (SAM) – DENORMS Workshop –

The fifth DENORMS workshop « Symposium on Acoustic Metamaterials” (SAM) will be held from 7th to 9th November 2018 in Xàtiva (Spain), organised by YRAM (Young Researcher in Acoustic Metamaterials) and Universitat Politècnica de València.

The first Symposium on Acoustic Metamaterials is targeted to Early Career Investigators  (i.e. researcher whose career spun less than 8 years since the date of the PhD) and PhD candidates and aims at sharing new advances and breakthroughs as well as fostering the community of young researchers in the field of acoustic metamaterials. The first SAM will be organised around 6 different sessions comprising 20 min talks and 4 plenary lectures.

Topics covered by SAM are listed below but not restricted to:

  • Acoustic/elastic metamaterials and phononic crystals
  • Acoustic/elastic metasurfaces
  • Non-reciprocal manipulation of acoustic/elastic waves
  • Acoustic/elastic meta-devices based on transformation acoustics, parity-time symmetric acoustics, topological acoustics
  • Novel physical concepts for harnessing acoustic/elastic waves
  • New applications of metamaterial-based functional devices for acoustic sensing, cloaking, imaging, absorption, energy harvesting, etc.

Several social activities will be organised during the symposium.

For more information, see the SAM website.

Registration and abstract submission

Participation in the Workshop is free of charges, but registration is mandatory. Registration should be completed on the SAM website before 20th September 2018. 35 grants will be attributed on competitive basis to Early Career Investigators and PhD candidates who will give a talk. These grants are contribution to the travel, accommodation and meal expenses will be available for participants who are presenting an abstract during the Workshop: 60 EUR per night (4 nights maximum), 15 EUR per meal, reimbursement of the transport (most economic way of transport). Priority will be given to PhD students and Early Career Investigators.

Abstracts submission should be performed simultaneously with the registration before 31st August 2018.

Travel and accommodation

Participants are expected to arrange their own travel and accommodation.

How to reach Xàtiva from the Valencia airport:

  • From Valencia airport to Nord Railway Station: Valencia airport is located approximately 8 km away from the center of Valencia.
    • Metro Line 3 (Rafelbunyol-Aeroport) or Line 5 (Marítim Serrería – Torrent Av. / Aeroport). The metro station is at the ground floor of the regional flights terminal. The journey takes around 15 minutes. The closest metro station from the Nord Railway Station is Xàtiva station. Tickets: €4.90 (3.90 + €1 for the card)
  • From Nord Railway Station to Xàtiva: train connects Nord Railway Station to Xàtiva – Moixent every 20 min (Renfe Line C-2). Please take care, three different trains with different terminus are going to Xàtiva: Trains to Alcudia de Crespins, to Moixent and to Xàtiva, will stop in Xàtiva train station. The journey is approximately 45 min long. Tickets: €4.35.

Single rooms have been pre-booked at Hotel Vernisa for a fixed price of 50 € /per night (breakfast included). Shared rooms can be also booked in Casa del Cigroner. Please indicate DENORMS when booking.
A list of other potential accommodations is given on www.xativaturismo.com/en/guide-to-accommodation.

Workshop « Working days on design and characterisation of innovative noise reducing materials and structures »

DENORMS Action’s forth Workshop “Working days on design and characterisation of innovative noise reducing materials and structures” will be held from 9th to 10th October 2018 in Kuopio (Finland), organised by University of Eastern Finland.

The aim of this workshop is to foster collaboration and exchange of ideas between researchers working on different topics centred around noise reducing treatments. Up to 9 working groups will be established with the total number of participants not exceeding 45.

It is expected that within each group the participants develop a detailed collaboration program. The outcomes of each program should be new grant applications, publications, and detailed work plan – all to be completed within a year from the date of the meeting.

For more information, see the Workshop flyer and tentative agenda.

Registration and group details submission

Participation in the Workshop is free of charge, but registration is mandatory. The Workshop is limited to 45 participants. Deadline: 24th June 2018.

30 support grants will be provided on competitive basis to participants. These grants are contribution to the travel, accommodation and meal expenses: 100 EUR per night (3 nights maximum), 20 EUR per meal, reimbursement of the transport (most economic way of transport).

Travel and accommodation

Participants are expected to arrange their own travel and accommodation.

Bus line 40 operates from Kuopio city centre to Kuopio Airport. Single ticket price for a trip from Airport to Kuopio city is 5,50 € (see the timetable).

Special session at the ISMA2018 Noise and Vibration Engineering Conference

A DENORMS special session will be held during the ISMA2018 Noise and Vibration Engineering Conference. The conference is organised by the division PMA of the KU Leuven in Leuven (Belgium) from 17 to 19 September 2018.

Abstracts for this special session can be submitted via the regular procedure of the conference, which can be found on https://www.isma-isaac.be/isma2018/abstract-submission/, but ‘DENORMS’ must be entered in the remarks field to the programme committee.

The deadline of the abstract submission for  special sessions is 15/02/18.

The ISMA2018 Noise and Vibration Engineering Conference is the 2018’s edition of a sequence of biennial international conferences on noise and vibration engineering, structural dynamics and modal testing. Since 2012 the ISMA conference is organized in conjunction with the USD conference on Uncertainty in Structural Dynamics. The 2016 edition of ISMA/USD conference was attended by more than 600 participants from academia and industry. The technical programme counted approximately 450 technical papers scheduled into 8 parallel tracks and 4 plenary poster sessions. Full conference proceedings will be published digitally and submitted for reference in the ISI Web of Science. A single registration will grant access to both the ISMA and the USD conference.
